We are a Christian based, results-driven, after-school program that helps at-risk youth have abundant life. We are looking for people who love the Lord and love helping kids to join us in the after-school hours to make a difference for kids.
Students failing in school are recommended to us by principals in the four under-resourced neighborhoods where we have after-school programming. We need volunteers to help us walk alongside the student as we work to enrich their lives-- mind, body, and soul. Come be a part of the solution!
How can you help?
1. Help kids with their homework. Encouraging them and giving them the individual attention they need.
2. Bible study or chapel - teaching them about God and His Word.
3. Be a mentor and encouragement! Building relationships is key!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
Volunteers choose one day a week (or more) .
Sample Programming Schedule:
3:30-5:00 - Dinner/Chapel/Bible study/Play
5:00-6:30 - Homework help/tutoring/read aloud (most help needed here)
One day a week, one hour a day can truly make a difference! We are flexible with what time you come and need to leave!
